Minority Report for Xbox

Activision, Inc. announced today that the company has been awarded the worldwide interactive rights to develop, publish and distribute interactive games based on Steven Spielberg’s upcoming sci-fi film Minority Report, starring Tom Cruise, which is slated for release in summer 2002.

Through an agreement with Fox Interactive and DreamWorks, Activision has signed a five year deal for the worldwide rights to develop games based on the highly-anticipated motion picture for all current and next generation consoles, the PC and handheld platforms.

Minority Report is a futuristic thriller based on a short story by noted sci-fi author Philip K. Dick. Dick is also well known for writing the original stories that inspired the popular motion pictures Blade Runner and Total Recall.

"Minority Report lends itself well to a wide variety of gameplay elements with intense futuristic storylines and gripping action-packed sequences," states Ron Doornink, President and COO, Activision, Inc. "As a multi-platform publisher, we intend to leverage this property across all of the major gaming systems including the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Xbox(TM) video game system from Microsoft, Nintendo GameCube(TM), Game Boy® Advance and the PC. We are very excited to work with Steven Spielberg, Fox Interactive and DreamWorks Pictures on what is expected to be one of the most anticipated films of 2002."

"Minority Report is ideally suited to be not only a great motion picture but an immersive and exciting interactive game, and we’re pleased to have Activision as a partner in bringing such a great property to the gaming arena," stated Steve Bersch, president of Fox Interactive.

Activision will work closely with Fox Interactive and DreamWorks to deliver an interactive game that reflects the rich storyline, characters and environments of the upcoming movie. With their input, Activision will re-create the visual and visceral immersive experience of this thrilling science fiction adventure.

"It’s clear that Minority Report will be one of the biggest blockbusters of 2002," says Greg Goldstein, Vice President of brand development and licensing for Activision, Inc. "With this film, Steven continues his legacy of creating some of the most compelling adventure films ever made."

Slated for release in summer 2002 Minority Report will star Tom Cruise, Colin Farrell, Max von Sydow, Samantha Morton and Kathryn Morris.
